Since God still “ruleth in the kingdom of man” (Daniel 4:25), and in His sight the “nations are as a drop of a bucket” (Isaiah 40:15), we must face up to our immediate responsibilities as Christian voters if we are to preserve America. What can we do to stem the tide of reprehensible conduct in our society? In the final analysis, the real salvation of any nation is the personal integrity of its individual citizens. It is in this area that our nation is suffocating. Our morals are at an all-time low ebb.
How can God allow our age of nudity, filth, homosexuality, adultery and lawlessness to long endure? There must be a major backlash on behalf of decency and common sense, or as a nation we will crumble into the dust! Truly, a monstrous contest of wickedness is going on between Christians and Satan’s homosexual lobbyists. What can we do to stem this tide of immoral wickedness?
First, we need to pray for national and personal purity. All New Testament Christians in Tennessee are encouraged to join in prayer to God on behalf of our nation on September 16, 2015 (Wednesday night). Our goal is to lift up our voices as one in praying for our country, state and federal government, president, congress and specifically for Biblical morals and the sanctity of the home and marriage. The West Sparta church of Christ, Sparta, TN, has made this request to our Tennessee brotherhood. Let us pray for God’s mercy and long-suffering, because we certainly need it.
Second, we need to standup for our Christian principles and convictions! It was true some 3,000 years ago in the days of Solomon, and it is true in 2015 that, “Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people” (Prov. 14:34). Righteousness refers to a state or condition wherein one is in a right relationship with God. Righteousness means to be free from sin, and this word derives from Greek words “dikaios” (a state of being right in our conduct) and “dikaiosune,” meaning whatever is right or conforms to revealed will of God. Righteousness literally suggests that which is straight as in a straight line. Righteousness is simply, right-doing, or a righteous person is one who is straight and lined up properly with God.
What can we do to stem the tide of unrighteousness and immoral conduct? Under our Constitution, courts have absolutely no power to make or change law, none whatsoever. This includes the president of the United States as Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton found out. But it also means that the Supreme Court is not above the law either. Unless there is a deep spiritual surge from Christians soon, the carnality of America will bring sure destruction!
In one of the most familiar statements regarding national concern, James Russell Lowell said, “Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide between the strife of truth and falsehood, good or evil.” God said, “There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet is not washed from its filthiness” (Prov. 30:12).
Third, we need the total mobilization of all Christians in our nation to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.” Our Constitution clearly states the legislative branch makes laws, executive branch carries out laws, and judicial branch only interprets the laws. The Supreme Court has zero authority to overturn DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) which was put into law by Congress and signed into law by Bill Clinton. DOMA allows each state to define its marriage laws.
As Christians we need to elect people who will have the courage to help us get out from under the despotism of our judicial oligarchy! This is clearly an out-of-control judiciary who have imposed their moral views about sexual deviancy on our entire nation. We need to cast our votes and elect those who will challenge the lawlessness of the court and help return this land to the rule of law and the rule of God!
